LIZ’S EGGLESS EGG SALAD

LIZ’S EGGLESS EGG SALAD

Since we have embarked on our meatless/vegan-ish journey and since putting my request out there for my readers to send in their favourite recipes to challenge me in my little galley, I have received almost exclusively vegan recipes.  It would seem that a good number of you are pursuing life with the same mind set as we are…that is…reducing animal protein, eating less meat, while doing our part for the planet. This is really a good thing, so thank you…

SAFFRON CHICK PEA STEW

SAFFRON CHICK PEA STEW

I’m in the soup and sandwich frame of mind today. Our ‘almost’ above 0 °C (32 ° F) temp starts my wheels turning for a boat picnic… Something quick and easy… something portable… Here is part one of my soup/sandwich duo.

Lemon Kale Chickpeas

Lemon Kale Chickpeas

Kale is all the rage these days. My daughter has found ways to use it everywhere from rich green smoothies to salads to casseroles….   For one of our Meatless Mondays I made this. Would have preferred baby kale but the big-less-tender-version was all I could find at our local market today. I don’t have an actual recipe so quantities are variable and this is super easy to throw together with one pan and a tiny galley…   Lemon Kale…

CRANBERRY PECAN CHICKPEA SALAD SANDWICH

CRANBERRY PECAN CHICKPEA SALAD SANDWICH

  Sometimes we like to have a simple sandwich and soup for supper, and because we are also cutting back on animal protein, I have been compiling quite a good collection of vegetarian recipes. The following was what I prepared for our ‘meatless Monday’ meal this week…     Cranberry Walnut Chickpea Salad Sandwich 1 cans (15oz) garbanzo beans (chickpeas) drained and rinsed 1/2 celery diced 1/4 cup dried cranberries 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans roughly chopped     1/2…
